I was holding off posting this room until we had a light fixture installed, but with a little one coming soon, I’m realizing I better take a picture of this room before it gets hit by Hurricane Baby.
The master bedroom was my first priority when we moved into our house last year. With the chaos and mess of moving (especially with two small kids), I wanted one room to feel complete, to be a peaceful place to rest our heads.
I decided on all white for our serene escape. I imagine at some point I will add in some color and layers, but for now I’m enjoying the calming emptiness without the toys and primary colors that bombard our living area.
I painted the beige room a slight off white (Sherwin Williams White Flour), but I left the walls beige in the hallway and niches on top for visual interest.
I didn’t have to buy much for this room, just some sheer curtains, bedspread, and rug (Costco). All of our furniture was jumbled together after our move, making it easy to take different pieces that belonged in different rooms of our old house.
I took the couch from the front sitting room and reconfigured it to fit in the corner.
Marcello couldn’t understand why my mom and I thought it was a great idea to put it in the bedroom. It’s bulky and “how often will you actually sit there?” he asked. And now guess who sits on it every day as he puts his shoes on? I like to do my Bible study there with the door closed — away from my lovely children. I think it works because it is white, like the walls, and doesn’t take up much room visually.
I also nabbed the dresser from the boys’ room old nursery, painted it, and changed the handles for an update:
You saw it, and I have proof. Our bedroom was once clean and even had the bed made. After baby’s arrival in a couple months, I’m sure it won’t be quite so serene. (But really, that’s perfectly fine by me if it means I get to finally meet this little girl!)
